Consol Message

Post by [system] » Fri Jun 06, 2008 11:28 pm

I love that people can make a console message that is in the dead-center of the room, I would like to know how to do that.

center_message

Almost all the settings you have asked for so far are in the settings file of the conifg folder. That can be found in your armagetron advanced dedicated server folder, try looking around in there...

read the logs, there you will find that « Command ROUND_CONSOLE_MESSAGE0XFFFFFF doesn't exist »
from that I'll let you guess what to do :)

Also, you'd have to use "\n" for line-breaks, and the whole message should be on the same line in your config.

Example: ROUND_CONSOLE_MESSAGE First line\nSecond line\nThird line etc...

here is a hint, but i dont want to give it away

Code: Select all

round_console_message 0xffffff /0xff0000.:: 0xffffffWelcome To The Soldiers Of Sin Clan Server! 0xff0000::.0xffffff\\\n|0xff0000.:: 0xffffffPlease DO NOT Do Any Of The Following! 0xff0000::.0xffffff|\n| 0xff0000Curse Excessively 0xffffff|\n| 0xff0000Complain 0xffffff|\n| 0xff0000Recruit For Other Clans 0xffffff|\n| 0xff0000Bad Sportsmanship 0xffffff|\n|0xff0000.:: 0xffffffHave A Great Time 0xff0000::.0xffffff|
(the reason for the double \ is to escape it)

or better..

Code: Select all

round_console_message 0xffffff /0xff0000.:: 0xffffffWelcome To The Soldiers Of Sin Clan Server! 0xff0000::.0xffffff\\\n\
|0xff0000.:: 0xffffffPlease DO NOT Do Any Of The Following! 0xff0000::.0xffffff|\n\
| 0xff0000Curse Excessively 0xffffff|\n\
| 0xff0000Complain 0xffffff|\n\
| 0xff0000Recruit For Other Clans 0xffffff|\n\
| 0xff0000Bad Sportsmanship 0xffffff|\n\
|0xff0000.:: 0xffffffHave A Great Time 0xff0000::.0xffffff|
(when escaping a newline the newline is just dropped, that's why i use \n\)

also note that outputting that each round will just annoy your users, using a MESSAGE_OF_DAY message would be more appropriate here

Ok, well... I want to use message_of_day but is there any way for it to last longer? Stay up on their screens for a longer time?

It will appear as a fullscreen message on new clients.
There's no place like ::1
